    So for reference my GPU temp is around the 40c mark at idle, and when I launch Rainbow Six Siege my GPU temps will literally increase to 75c in a matter of seconds.
    My specs:
    cpu: AMD Ryzen 5 5600x
    gpu: Msi GamingX Geforce Gtx 1660 super (Twin Frozr 7)
    ram: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200MHz 2x8gb
    psu: Corsair RM750
    mobo: Asus x570 Tuf -PLUS WiFi
    case: NZXT 210
    To my knowledge my BIOS is up to date and running in "asus Optimal" mode which seems to be a modest stock OC setup, I also have up to date graphics drivers using Geforce Experience. I have a custom fan curve on MSI Afterburner I use to keep the temps in a range I like and I don't mind the extra sound, and I don't currently have my GPU overclocked. I have been trying to maximize the airflow in my case and I have currently 2 intake fans on the front, and 1 exhaust fan in the back, and a stock Wraith cooler on my CPU currently which keeps my 5600x in a reasonably healthy range when under load although I do plan on upgrading this. So to get to the issue- when I launched Rainbow Six Siege I noticed my GPU making more noise than usual, and it even seemed to have an audible "whine" which I could repeat at will by simply ALT+TAB'ing to hear it come and go as I opened and minimized the game. I always usually play with a Task Manager in the background so I can keep an eye on any unwanted programs starting or eating up my resources so I immediately noticed the GPU temperature. I am well aware that 75c is perfectly normal in most under load instances but this just seemed odd to me. I ran a Kombustor stress test with everything stock for around 10 minutes and my GPU temp held steady at 75c with 99%utilization. The problem is that in the Siege lobby my GPU is doing almost no legwork, and it is really off-putting to see my temps go from 40c to 75c in literally 10 seconds.

    Any and all advice on this topic would be well received and much appreciated as I have exhausted about all I know in terms of fixing this (including a full re-install).
    Thanks!

    To update anyone I am still experiencing this issue and monitoring this post for any replies.

    I am able to run literally every other game I can think of, COD MW, Escape from Tarkov, For Honor, etc. All of those games have completely different reactions when launched and played, much cooler GPU temps that will increase in temperature as the GPU usage % increases as one would expect, and obviously my fans aren't working nearly as hard and the "coil whine" is non existent. This is incredibly frustrating.

    Another update: when switching from the main menu to the tab where you view previous recordings my temps decrease to 45-50c (normal temps) with <5% gpu consumption. As soon as I switch back to the main portion of the menu it immediately will spike back up to 75c and when I play an actual game I am even slightly COOLER at 70c with MORE gpu consumption. Is my only recourse here to really enable vsync and hamstring my setup? I am fully convinced this is a problem with R6 siege.

    @iamkrillin Sorry for the stress this issue has been trying to remedy on your end. Since you have exhausted all steps we can provide here on the forums, could you create a support ticket with your system files attached? This will allow us to take a closer look into this with you to try and pinpoint what might be causing this issue when playing Rainbow Six Siege.

    @ubi-smash I appreciate the response, I did attempt a support ticket shortly after this post but unfortunately wasn't able to submit the ticket after attaching the files I was shown a red circle with a slash indicating something missing so I gave up.
    I did, however, solve the problem at least temporarily. I knew this was likely an issue with framerate based on various reports of people generally experiencing high framerates in game menus in general (not necessarily r6). And most individuals could solve this by enabling vsync or otherwise limiting their framerate in either in game settings or nvidia control panel. I of course attempted this multiple times initially and was still showing the same symptoms as before and thus I moved on. However desperate times caused me to back track and after I manually capped r6 siege's FPS to 145 (like I had previously done atleast one or more times prior) it actually was showing reasonable lobby temperatures. This is especially odd considering in the lobby typically I wouldn't pull anything higher than maybe high 100's frames anyway and in game I can actually pull almost 300 sometimes atleast always over 200. I myself am not the most technically savvy individual however I have a pretty rigorous approach to problem solving and I absolutely refuse to give up until I have searched every possible way of solving an issue, with this said I shutter to think what the average individual would do in this scenario. New GPU? MOBO? CPU? My next course of action was going to be to open my GPU and reapply thermal paste and confirm the card was clean. It seems obvious that all of this could be solved for the average user by simply refining the menu fps options in rainbow 6.

    TL/DR: Cap your frames to 145 via nvidia control panel to fix the issue I had (many times if needed). Average users will not be able to do anything about this if they even notice it at all, burn up components, waste time and resources. Menu framerate cap can easily solve this.

    @iamkrillin Hey, Krillin!

    Has capping the FPS to 145 resolved this issue fully for you or is it still happening?

    I'm also having this exact same issue.

    RTX2080ti
    i9-9900K

    Symptoms happen on both DirectX and Vulkan.

    My bios, graphics card, windows etc all up to date. Physically removed and cleaned the fan of my GPU and issue still persists. Also reinstalled Siege and clean installed the graphics driver.

    I really do not want to limit any FPS since it would basically waste my 360hz monitor. But I do limit the max fps to 360 in my the config files.

    Issue only persists when in main menu, if I move to any other screen - whether it be the operator section, store, in game, etc then the issue does not happen.

    When the temp spikes the GPU goes up to 80+ degrees triggering the fans.

    I really hope siege doesn't break my GPU because of this

    @ComaKeytone Hey! Sorry to hear that you are also experiencing this issue. Are you using any software such as MSI to control the fans on the GPU?

    Same issue on my end. My GPU is using 400W and sitting at 75degrees in the menu lol. Its capped at 240fps via game files. Please fix this UBI

    @ubi-viral In a match its consuming anywhere from 280-340Ws and sitting at 60-65 degrees. I'm very surprised we need all that power to look at a moving background in the menu.

    Hi there @DogWater-_

    Thanks for confirming this. Would you also happen to be seeing an increase in FPS whilst in the menu?
    Could you let us know if you're using MSI to control the fans on the GPU? or any similar software?

    Thank you.

    @ubi-nacho The FPS is capped, so its not increasing above the limit I've set (240). If I click on the shop section, the GPU goes back to its normal state in the menu (low power usage and acceptable temps), kind of a bandaid solution. Its actually the moving background in the main menu causing this issue. Yes I'm using MSI for fan control, I'm sure the majority are if their GPU's have an OC on them. The fan speed will increase if its under heavy load, that's just how it works. Its not an MSI software issue.

    @dogwater-_ Thanks for answering those questions.

    If you set a lower FPS limit, do you still see an FPS spike in the menu?

    Additionally, would you be able to test if this still occurs after disabling the MSI software? Sometimes conflicts with other programs can cause problems like this, so I'd just like to see if this may be a factor.
